Transinsight Partners with Max Planck on Biomedical Image Searching

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - Transinsight, a bioinformatics startup based in Dresden, Germany, said last week that it has entered a three-year collaboration with the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics in the area of biomedical image analysis.
 
Transinsight said that it plans to extend its GoPubMed search engine “towards biomedical image search and knowledge-based image recognition.” The company said that it plans to focus on “particle tracking imagery produced by high-throughput microscopy.”
 
Marino Zerial, MPI-CBG director, said in a statement that “it is essential to be able to extract more information from the new generation of image-based screens.”
 
Transinsight was founded in late 2005. The company has raised seed financing from the German High-Tech Gründer Fonds and an additional undisclosed amount from a private investor.
